Ethiopia – the scorched earth of Africa. This is a place where temperatures soar to more than 55 degrees Celsius while at the same time cooler high-altitude lakes feed some of Africa's most spectacular waterfalls. For the past 30 million years, volcanic activity has created a uniquely diverse terrain. Now, one man risks life and limb to come face-to-face with the driving forces that are still sculpting the landscape to this day. As parts of the region continue to sweat, local people adapt to survive. Ethiopia is a land of extremes and it soon becomes clear that nature hasn't finished her work here yet.

Nearly a thousand caves dot the ocean floor near the Bahamas, southeast of the Florida peninsula. These "blue holes" are limestone caves that have formed over the course of 350,000 years. There's little oxygen in the water in these caves, making it incredibly transparent with an over 100-meter visibility. The caves reflect only the deepest blue spectrum of light. Inside are numerous stalactites. There are also calcareous crystals, some shaped like roses, that reflect light like quartz. In addition, the bones of ancient animals and humans have been found in these caves. Join us as we dive into this wondrous world.
